Ranitomeya is a genus of poison dart frogs. It contains many species formerly classified in the genera Dendrobates and Phyllobates. Ranitomeya frogs can be distinguished from those in the former genera in that they are generally smaller, have more than two colors, and seem to glitter if viewed from certain angles. However, there is some debate that all Ranitomeya species may yet be placed back into Phyllobates. Nearly all species in this genus once belonged to the Dendrobates genus.

Species Edit

Recently, Ranitomeya has absorbed nearly all of the species in the genus Phyllobates, and many from the genus Dendrobates.
